Iberdrola has inaugurated one of the largest ultrafast charging centers for electric vehicles in southern Europe. Located on the A-70 highway, in the municipality of Elche, next to the airport, the Institución Ferial Alicantina (IFA) and Elche Parque Empresarial, the facility, which uses Ibil and Ingeteam technology, consists of two charging stations -one in each direction of the highway- and will have a total nominal power of four megawatts.

Iberdrola partnered with Porsche for the project
The infrastructure, carried out in collaboration with Porsche, has a total of four 400 kW chargers and another 12 200 kW chargers, with the possibility of charging up to 16 vehicles simultaneously and with the capacity to recharge the battery of an electric car in less than five minutes.
The presentation ceremony was attended by the Minister of Territorial Policy, Public Works and Mobility, Arcadi España; the mayor of Elche, Carlos González; the general manager of Porsche Ibérica, Tomás Villén; and the global director of Smart Mobility at Iberdrola, Raquel Blanco, who explained how the installation works and presented Iberdrola’s electric charging network for electric vehicles, the most powerful in Spain.
For Raquel Blanco, “Iberdrola is making a significant investment in this type of infrastructure to provide coverage for intercity travel for users of electric vehicles. These are innovative facilities, suitable for any type of electric car, which allow the batteries to be charged in very short times and which, together with the network of charging points that the company has in operation in the rest of Spain, represent a definitive commitment to the decarbonization of mobility in our country.”
Iberdrola, a world leader in renewable energies, has partnered with Porsche, a leader in technology and innovation, to install a total of 35 ultra-fast charging stations in Spain with the most powerful chargers on the market. This collaboration also includes the installation of 15 innovative charging points at strategic nodes, with more than 300 kW of unitary power, associated with battery storage systems that increase the efficiency of the facilities.
In addition to this alliance, the company continues with its electric mobility expansion plan, which will allow it to install ultrafast recharging stations in strategic areas throughout the country in the coming years, as well as to continue with the deployment of lower power facilities. These ultra-fast recharging hubs join the recharging infrastructure network that Iberdrola is deploying, which already has more than 2,500 public recharging points in operation nationwide.
It should be noted that users of these facilities will recharge the battery of their electric cars with 100% green energy, from renewable generation sources, with a certificate of guarantee of origin and the recharging points will be located in the Iberdrola Public Recharging App. This is the only application in Spain that incorporates verified information on all-electric vehicle chargers, both those of Iberdrola and those of other operators, from which you can geolocate the charger, check its operation in real-time and book and pay from your cell phone.
As Aitor Arzuaga, general manager of Ibil, explained to elEconomista, this inauguration is a milestone as it offers a wide perspective of development to a Spanish technology.
For Arzuaga, the new regulation approved last December eliminates at least two-thirds of the barriers that existed for the implementation of recharging points and predicts a massive deployment in the coming months in our country.
Ibil currently has around 3,000 recharging points under management and the company continues to grow while expecting an increase in the penetration of electric cars thanks to this greater ease of access to charging points.
